Chris Telford 

Bayfield, Ontario, Canada

Unleashing his talent in an online program

After several years in carpentry and plumbing, Chris Telford launched his own independent design company CTEKDESIGNS. Realizing he needed a foundation in design to develop his native talent, he enrolled in the Sessions College Associate in Graphic Design program in Fall 2014.

Chris graduated the Sessions College AOS in Graphic Design program in May 2016 with a 3.99 GPA, Chris Telford was an endlessly creative and committed student whose work was featured in our student gallery more than ten times—a record. His work always exhibited outstanding craftsmanship and attention to detail.

Chris was one of our six outstanding graduates for 2016 and nominated to be our GDUSA Magazine Student to Watch for 2016. Asked for student of the year nomination, our Graphic Design department head Andrew Shalat commented: "Chris Telford, twice."

"At Sessions College I get to constantly work at my craft, collaborate with like-minded people and turn my passion for design into a career I love. I was looking for a degree program that was flexible, affordable, and one that provided a diverse range of course material, and Sessions College was my answer."
